Trump to Biden: Thanks for not running for president

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump took to social media on Thursday to thank Vice President Joe Biden for not running for office.

Trump posted on both Twitter and Instagram saying that Joe Biden did the right thing by not running.

"I wanted to run against Hilary anyway, so I'm really happy."


Biden revealed on Wednesday that he would not be running because he does not believe that he has enough time to mount a winning campaign for the nomination. The vice president also cited the death of his 46 year-old son, Beau, as a factor in his decision.
